RFMA Gives Update

Hello RFMA Members,

Now that the RFMA Gives 2016 project at The Journey Home is completed, I wanted the thank all the donors and volunteers who made this event wonderful. A very special thanks to the Project Co-Chairs, Jim Roeger of Olive Garden and Gordon Bruner of VMC Facilities LLC.  A local Murfreesboro newspaper summarized our project in a great article that I also wanted to share.

OK, now on to the 2017 project. The Co-Chairs this year are Mark Gomolla, CRFP from Red Robin along with Ron Wilhite, CRFP from Regions Facility Services with Kelly Otto, CRFP also from Red Robin providing additional project support. We will be traveling to Orlando the week of April 4th to tour potential sites. We are scheduled to have an approved location by the end of May. At that point, hopefully, we are able to provide a "wishlist" of projects that will be made available to the companies and individuals who expressed interest in getting involved.

On the topic of involvement, thanks go out to all the participants of the 5K Fun Run during the conference with 100% of the registration fees going directly towards funding of the 2017 RFMA Gives project. A special "shout-out" to all who participated. They are:

Jeff, make sure you pat yourself on the back as well. Your leadership of this great effort is one we are all thankful for. As each new year comes, the years' before efforts continue to grow the spirit and exctiement behind this great event. I am constantly amazed by how people's hearts get stirred by these events. It only takes one time volunteering and we all get hooked. Keep us posted on how we can help, and I cant wait to see how Mark, Ron, Kelly and you INSPIRE us all with this year's selection.

I'm already looking forward to the RFMA Gives project in my hometown of Orlando, FL. Anxious to hear who is chosen and how I can help Mark, Jeff and Ron. Volunteer event will be fun, so come on out/down/over.
